Froyo coming to the myTouch 3G Slide

30


I just received my monthly newsletter from HTC today. After reading through the main topics in the newsletter there wans’t much that we all didn’t already now. Further down though, I did find this little nugget of information.

This doesn’t give us a time frame of when the OTA will be available unfortunately. None the less though this does mean that the update is coming. It also looks like they will be adding in there new Wi-Fi calling feature that can be found on the T-Mobile G2 and the newest member, the My Touch 4G.


It is good to know that someone is still working to bring these other devices up to date. I just hope they can integrate the Expresso UI into it well enough to not make this update a complete failure. How many of you out there are still rocking a Slide? You ready for your dose of Froyo love too?

I am the proud father of three, 3, 9, and 12. I recently upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the Sony Xperia Z. Having so many kids warranted a change of pace. Let me tell you, it is mind blowing. I love Android, I love tech and I love my family. Not in that order though. I work hard, play even harder and take care of all that are around me when I can.

  • Shonejdavid8988

    Nexy yr I bet bcz I waited and waited so I jailbroke mine…

  • Jacob

    Mine is already running froyo courtesy of cyanogen lol def would help to have the wifi calling where I live!

    hot damn, it’s about time. well, just in time to be behind again when gingerbread comes out, anyway… I’m using cm6, as well, but as trivial as it seems, I really want my dialer and clock apps back. really don’t know what else espresso had with it, but those 2 are essential. until then, I’ll bear with dialer one and ultimate stopwatch.

      hey arphez, get the update to cm6. its a rc but very stable. it updates to cm 6.1 and android version 2.2.1 has everything ur lookin for. find it at xda developers

  • rarestock

    Still rocking a slide? It just came out 5 months ago. I upgraded with a 2 year contract. I’ve avoided rooting my phone up to this point, so yes I’m very anxious for this update.

    for the MT3G,just flash CM6.1,it uses the drivers from the stock froyo update.

  • androidEyez

    Rooted my girls a month after she got it so froyo is old to all us cyanogen custom rom heads, but maybe this will bring more custom roms to the table for the slide there are a few but I would like to see Rodrigues Styles contribute to this device he doesn’t get enough credit his roms are cool to use, and when Gingerbread drops I will port that. And all those who complain about being behind need to root or by highend devices the choice is yours but just don’t complain this is the wrong site for that!!!!

    still rocking it? I just fricken got the thing two months ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rooted with cyanogen….couldn’t have been happier

    • Khalil Quinan

      how did you root it? I’ve been trying to figure it out for months but I just don’t have the computer know how to hack it. Is there any easier way than the ones on xda?

      • AKM

        Hmmm… What is to root? (in the context of this)

    Sometimes I forget that the My Touch Slide is still so new. I have many friends that spend way to much money on their phones and have moved on to the G2 and the My Touch 4G already. They are crazy.

    Hopefully ill be able to root it after thy update. I rooted mine on 2.1 and then update 1 rolled out. So im screwed now. Cause it has set S-ON. So I’ve got superuser in apps but its useless! Wtf :(

    • KCRic

      There’s a root method that’s been out since a few days after that update. S-ON has nothing to do with it.

    Thanks man. I can’t wait.

    For all of you that have a MT3G, I just received my second Froyo update today. I’ve had it for at least 2 weeks now from an OTA update.
